Re: Has Batman hurt the genre where costumes are concerned?
It seems to be working regardless of who ended it. Again you have to take it on a character by character basis, even if the comics have justified costumes that doesn't guarantee it's suitable for film, again it's cliched but what works on the page doesn't always work on film. Most cases there's a middle ground that can be reach, but that still won't wash with some people. Honestly, if people want 100% comic actuate costume they're probably better off browsing some cosplay websites or going through the many fan films on youtube to get their fix because I'm doubtful Hollywood is gonna start rolling back to bright coloured spandex any time soon.
